What’s new in water?

Oh, I thought you’d never ask.

I’ve got some important tidbits for you.

Oh don’t whine, this is the last water column by me you’ll have to slog through so COWGRRRL UP!

The biggest, immediate water question right now is: Will they? Or won’t they?

I’m talking about the California WaterFix and whether local farmers will help pay for it.

WaterFix is the new generation “peripheral canal” project being pushed by Gov. Jerry Brown to route water through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta via two tunnels, to avoid further damage to endangered fish species.

The WaterFix will reportedly cost $16 billion or more, depending on whom you talk to.
